i posted this in clothing: discuss future projects a couple of days ago, but i thought it would be appreciated here just as much, so here it is again! <3

------------------------------------------------

hey everyone... i just wanted to post a link to the vintage pattern lending library for anyone who hasn't heard of/seen it before. basically, what it is is a vast collection of something like 3,000 vintage sewing/needlework patterns from the 1900's to 1950's... some of my favorite things are the hats and flapper dresses! anyway, the cool thing about it is that after buying a year membership ($20 is the cheapest) you can check out most patterns for $5 like you would a book at the library! there are also some patterns for sale... but i haven't looked into that out much. if you sew a lot and have a hard time finding fun exciting patterns at the usual sources (joann's, hancocks, blah blah) you should check it out!

Jan who runs it is really cool too. They are in Oakland in a very swank art deco building. They have SO MUCH STUFF. I helped them move. It was nuts.
